    In addition to scheme and QB play and anything else, the offensive line play so far has been a big component to the offense's success.

    http://www.nfl.com/stats/categoryst...263-o=1&d-447263-p=1&d-447263-s=PASSING_QBHIT

    4 QB hits allowed in 2 games -- only the 49ers and Ravens have allowed fewer.

    1 sack allowed in 2 games -- tied for the lead with 49ers.

    100% success rushing in power situations (3rd or 4th down with 2 or fewer for first down, or any goal-to-go situation 2 or fewer yards from end zone)

    They're awesome a huge reason we're off to a hot start and will be if we're to continue on a deep run.

    They look better, but you have to consider quality of competition. Both of those lines are JV. We'll know way more about them after the Packers and Jets (assuming they're healthy).

    No one is talking about the Niners, but they're probably the best team in the NFC.

    I was getting worried after the last couple years but so far they’re looking 2014 & 2016 good.

    And I heard hear that Conner Williams was a bust! I've watched him this year, he is really coming on for a second year player. Don't worry guys Conner will surprise you with another season under his belt.

    Yeah, I think McGov will work out for sure! I watched Connor Williams quite a bit cause my daughter goes to UT up in austin. He is a special player for sure.

    They’ve been great pass blocking both game. First game against the Giants they were terrible run blocking, they were very good against the redskins though, especially in the second half

    Dak has actually had less time to throw than more than 20 other QBs.

    https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/stats/passing#average-time-to-throw

    The ball is coming out sooner, as opposed to last year when he got sacked a ton despite the Cowboys line. He made the line look bad last year, now he's paying them back.

    I credit Kitna, Moore, and Dak himself.

    Tyron Smith started bad last year but finished at an all-pro level the last 10 games last year. He has looked incredible so far and Travis Frederick is now back playing.

    Add in the ball coming out sooner and you have a great offensive line/unit

    I've actually dialed in on him the first two games and he's struggling. A good chunk of the plays in pass protection in which he doesn't have a Frederick help/chip he's either getting straight up bull-rushed or beat immediately off the line.

    Depending on the weekly DT match-up I wouldn't be surprised to see more help from Frederick

    'Well since the center is (pretty sure) Russell Wilson, guessing the Pro Bowl.

    Doubt that since the have Jimmy G at the helm. Don't trust that guy one bit. Seems like Kirk Cousins 2.0.

    Williams still has some improving to do but the others have been solid so far, granted we are only 2 games into the season. Tyron or Zack will have their sore backs have them miss time eventually. How will the offensive line fair when the main guys aren't out there? I like our depth at the O line, but let's hope it isn't tested too much.
